Quake has been playable in VR for a while (Years actually) but maybe this is better (haven’t checked the video yet)?

@Possyguset This version is special, using 2 hands, throwing axes, really nice. Also Valve and Alyx may learn something from this version, running and jumping in vr is awesome, without that stupid teleport. Games are for gamers, not for my grandma :wink:

late to the party. Quake 1 and 2 HL 1, 2, Doom 1,2,3 have been playable in proper VR for quite some time now. for pc and quest.

But this one looks different Ill give you that.

Not everyone can handle the free motion. Glad that the option exist, but when deciding options,usually is for the lowest common denominator. That said, that is good having options exist

Yes I know. I had to develop my vr legs also. I started with celphone vr games while in sviwel chair, and that was until I found HL1 vr on cellphone. HL forced me to be better, especially in Zen world, with jumping on floating platforms.
Now I am old vr gamer, and vr helpers, as reducing speed, jumping, or reduced fov just make me mad. I wish you all get your vr legs and enjoy.
PS: My advice: Start playing in short sessions (5min, then 10min, then 15min…), and use natural turning in real world. Next step is fast snap turn (if your HMD is not wifi). I never use slow turning on button, that can even me make sick.

You must be a young puppy. If you stop gaming just because you get old then it will be your loss. I’ll be 70 in a few weeks and gaming keeps me fit and it isn’t because I use teleport. I prefer full movement in my games so, I agree with you there.
If you love your grandma, you’ll encourage the activity.

Inspired by this I gave Doom 1 a go in VR.

Awesome to replay now that I can look and shoot anywhere, with GL smoothed sprites and voxel guns :slight_smile:

Not yet but I heard it’s good in VR. I have it somewhere, just not on Steam…

i felt sick just watching a youtube video of that

@Butosai it is better to drive a car, than just to be a passanger, if youre a car sick person. Same is with VR.

A few months back, I played a modified version of Quake 1, that had colored lighting and other improvements. While there are several mods which can provide this, I played QuakeSpasm SDL2. Even though I played on my flat monitor, the game was so much better. I originally played it at 400x300 res. It’s great at 4K and the colored lighting makes the game world feel more real.

Wonder how shes doing. :grinning:

Completely off topic…

I used to be a distance cyclist (100+ miles in a day, it’s called a “century”). Unfortunately, due to health issues, I had to give it up. I hope that one day, I’ll be able to ride again, even if it’s just for an hour or two.

If you’re interested, here’s a video of the first half of a 100 mile trip I did 10 years ago, to the Alabama state line and back. I didn’t film the return leg. The video is in fast motion, so it’s only 2 minutes long. At 1:21 I omitted a frame from the video (to avoid freaking my wife out); you should never cross railroad tracks once the gates are down. The train missed me by at least 3 seconds. :open_mouth:
